My first YEAR I only lost five pounds (goal of 30). In the following year and a half, after figuring out I am actually intolerant to wheat and playing around with my macros (quadrupling protein--I was sill under the .3 grams/pound mentality) I lost ten more pounds in two random chunks. If you're coming from a "healthy" diet, whether CW or vegan as I'd done both, I think your losses might not be as dramatic as someone from junk food and SAD.
Get healthy first, weight loss will naturally follow. Typically it's the quick losers who relapse and regain. I think us slow losers don't want to have to do all that hard work all over again. :/
